UFC heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis is currently rebounding from a tough and recurring back injury that has finally subsided thanks to the use of a recently USADA approved steroid injection. With that in mind, “The Black Beast” believes his former back problem was the only thing keeping him from achieving UFC gold.
Speaking on MMA Junkie Radio, Derrick Lewis has come forward to offer his thoughts on finally fixing his back injury.
“I feel like if I had done this a couple of years ago, I would have been champion. I believe I would have dominated a lot of my fights. To say I’ve been winning with the type of injury I’ve been dealing with, it’s been a blessing. Now, hopefully the fans really see my potential.”
